C-I seniors selected for Triple A Award
Crosby-Ironton High School seniors Beau Sanford and Katjanna Tauzell were selected to represent C-I and Region 7A in the Academics, Arts, and Athletics Award program.
Established in 1988, the Triple "A" Award is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League. The award is presented to high school seniors who have a "B" or better GPA and who participate in league-sponsored athletics and fine arts activities.
Sanford is the son of Tony and Kim Sanford. While at C-I, he has participated in band, football and baseball. He was a captain of the football team last fall and will serve as captain of the baseball team this upcoming spring. He was also named to the MFCA Academic All-State team this past fall. He carries a 4.0 GPA in the classroom.
Tauzell is the daughter of Mark and Colleen Tauzell. She is president of the school band, plays in the jazz band and also participates in choir. She plays volleyball, is the manager for the girls basketball team and is a captain for the softball team. She carries a 3.2 GPA.
Triple "A" Award recipients are selected through a multi-level process involving member schools of the league, the league's administrative regions and a special committee of educators, business leaders and members from the fine arts and athletic communities. The top two award finishers from each region will be invited to a state banquet. Award recipients—a boy and a girl from both a Class A and a Class AA school—will receive four-year $1,000 scholarships.
